Tripawd cats are so spry, it seems there’s nothing they can’t do after amputation recovery. Unfortunately, just like dogs, three-legged cats are at great risk of joint pain and arthritis caused by over-compensating for their missing limb.
“Icee is missing her right front leg and the left front seems to be “stiffer” than I remember . . . We always laughed at how Icee looked like my grandmother walking but now it is really evident.” – Let’s Talk Tripawd Cats, Dogs and Rehab Therapy with Dr. Kennedy
When arthritis strikes, cats are so good at hiding their pain you probably won’t see it coming until it’s too late. The good news is, you can do something now to lessen the risk of arthritis in your Tripawd cat. And it all starts with one tasty treat.

Caring for a Cat with Arthritis
The non-profit International Cat Care has a helpful article called “Arthritis and degenerative joint disease in cats.” Some tips to manage arthritis in cats include:
“Several dietary supplements and diets are available for cats with arthritis. They usually contain combinations of essential fatty acids (EFAs) that are designed to reduce inflammation, and glycosaminoglycans (such as glucosamine and chondroitin) that are the ‘building blocks’ of the cartilage in the joint and designed to improve cartilage quality.” read more

We put our cat on a glucosamine supplement about a year ago and she’s been so much better since then. She’s almost 10 years old, but I think she moves around with a lot less pain that before.
That’s awesome Jennifer! Which supplement are you using?
